Coding Classes for Kids

Learn Computer Science Skills

Coding is a language that must be taught early and taught often. There shouldn’t be downtime when learning any STEAM skill. This fast-evolving space requires progressive education that is consistent and engaging every step of the way.

Practice Essential Soft-Skills

Our proprietary programs focus on both hard and soft skills, helping your child gain a well-rounded balanced education which is highly sought after in STEAM and tomorrow’s growing technical workforce.


We want to create leaders. We want to create innovators. We want to create people that are working towards a better future.

– Elena Diosdado, iCode Curriculum Manager.

Why Code and Why iCode? 

β€œComputer science is not just for smart ‘nerds’ in hoodies coding in basements. Coding is extremely creative and is an integral part of almost every industry.”
– Reshma Saujani Founder & CEO of Girls Who Code

Tech-Oriented World

Today, 77% of parents think that coding is one of the most important skills to learn in our digital age. Moreover, 94% of parents are concerned about loss of learning and summer slide due to COVID-related conditions since last year.

Teaching Skills that Matter 

We apply the Agile Teaching/Learning methodology, whereby students learn and apply skills to efficiently work in a team to manage projects.This teaches time management, collaboration and high-level thinking, better preparing kids for school and beyond.

Kids Do Better When They See Results 

Being immersed in technology and being allowed to manipulate those technologies, gives instant feedback. iCode consistently allows that opportunity for kids, making learning exciting, engaging and fun!
